Do you live in a one TV household? If your marathon PS3 gaming sessions are getting interrupted by Dad switching over to Top Gear or your girlfriend popping on a bit of Jersey Shore, then the PS Vita may prove a vital addition to your home life.
YouTube user homer49 has been posting videos of his time spent with a PS Vita, hacked to a custom firmware version 3.55.
However, instead of playing Uncharted: Golden Abyss or another PS Vita game, he’s using it to play full-blown PS3 titles like Battlefield 3 and Batman: Arkham City, as shown in the clips below.
He’s doing so using the console’s Remote Play streaming feature, which, while officially supported with PS3 firmware version 4.0, has so far only been shown to work with Killzone 3 and LittleBigPlanet 2. homer49’s hack allows for many more games to take advantage of the function, including Red Dead Redemption and Mortal Kombat too.
Scroll down to see them in action, running very impressively. Let’s hope Sony hurry up and roll out this functionality officially on a broader scale in the near future.
